Kismet application is an 802.11 layer2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system
Kismet application is an 802.11 layer2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. Kismet will work with any wireless card which supports raw monitoring (rfmon) mode, and can sniff 802.11b, 802.11a, and 802.11g traffic.
Kismet identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden networks, and infering the presence of nonbeaconing networks via data traffic.
Here are some key features of "Kismet":
Ethereal/Tcpdump compatible data logging
Airsnort compatible weak-iv packet logging
Network IP range detection
Built-in channel hopping and multicard split channel hopping
Hidden network SSID decloaking
Graphical mapping of networks
Client/Server architecture allows multiple clients to view a single
Kismet server simultaneously
Manufacturer and model identification of access points and clients
Detection of known default access point configurations
Runtime decoding of WEP packets for known networks
Named pipe output for integration with other tools, such as a layer3 IDS like Snort
Multiplexing of multiple simultaneous capture sources on a single Kismet instance
Distributed remote drone sniffing
Over 20 supported card types
What's New in This Release:
Support was added for broadcom, ipw3945, madwifi-ng, and ipw-livetap.
General stability fixes were done.
